New free plan? was created by Zev161
Looks like FreeUp removed free 500/100mb plan and replaced with 1000/0mb plan. Not good, at least for me.

Yep, looks like they fixed the glitch... I am no longer able to renew to the old plan...
I guess with voice and text, F-Up SIM is now only a match for dumb flip/bar phones.

I recommend pairing it with a FreedomPop Sprint MiFi, which is probably the only FreedomPop device worth having, anymore.

550 MB in a compact package.

I've got two and I'll just be sure to turn one on and throw it in my purse when I carry my FreeUp phone.

Fortunately, I can just live off Sprint 1 year free on a family mbr's acct to Jan 2020 (Mar or Jun 2020 if I sign up my own acct in Mar or Apr)... no stress.

No, 25 more days... I am able to just click on 'change plan' to program in next month's plan.

If your plan isn't up for renewal, I don't think the 'upgrade' plans available tell you anything. I saw the same 1000/0mb plan as an upgrade option before renewing my plan on the 500/100mb plan about 12 days ago.

zev161, are you looking for a new line, or a renewal? If a renewal, are you in the last week of your current month? That's the point at which most of us saw the option to renew on the old plan.

Last month, when programming in next month's 'change plan', I had the 500/100mb plan... today, only the 1000/0mb plan... :(

No guarantees until zev161 (or someone else) confirms more recent renewals, but...

From memory, days before the renewal popup appeared on my account, the 500/100mb plan was nowhere to be seen moving forward. When the renewal popup appeared in the last week, renewing on the 500/100mb plan became a choice. This would be the expectation if the old 500/100mb plan is only available for grandfathered renewals on lines already on that plan. It's not likely to appear under the "change plan" menu since no one can 'change' to a plan that is no longer a current offer.

I hope KentE is right. With all the failed coupon credits, if my current 500/100mb plan isn't available when I go in to renew, I'll just cancel FreeUp and move to RedPocket.
